Neal : What kind of car?
Customer: 2006 Monaco cayman motor home
Neal :

If you did not find a leak or experience any problems I would not be too concerned. It is possible you drove through spilled diesel on the roadway or smelled someone elses leak. I would just keep an eye open for leaks and not be two concerned as there is no good reason you would smell diesel and it would go away on it's own.
